Hugh Jackman Confirms Its Aronofsky To Direct Wolverine 2

“This is going to be very different,” says the actor. You do surprise us…

Jackman tells Vulture , “This is, hopefully for me, going to be out of the box. It’s going to be the best one, I hope. Well, I would say that, but I really do feel that, and I feel this is going to be very different.

“This is Wolverine . This is not Popeye . He’s kind of dark. But, you know, this is a change of pace. Chris McQuarrie, who wrote The Usual Suspects, has written the script, so that’ll give you a good clue. Aronofsky’s going to make it fantastic. There’s going to be some meat on the bones. There will be something to think about as you leave the theater, for sure.”

Blimey. Wolverine 2 , the thinking man’s superhero film? Next we’ll be hearing that Ghost Rider 2 is going to be turned into a five-act Italian opera based on Faust .
